Letter from Poetry Magazine

Letter to the Editor

by Melissa Wirsig
Dear Editor,

I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed your interview with Alice Pillsbury from the Treemont Retirement Community [“Of All the Poems in the World, Why Would You Pick This One?”]. It was so respectful, and still it educated her and me. I love your podcasts, the way you interact with each other and your guests and offer so much insight about poetry. Thank you.

Decatur, Georgia
